The Witcher Mod

Jon Hanz (pennywise) and were ask to build a project for PDX Charity LAN last February and enter it in the Charity Lan Mod contest..Not only did we win the Charity Lan contest, we won the CPU magazine mod contest being held at the same event. The build is based of CD Projekt Red’s new game Witcher III. While Jon handled all the installation of the system hardware,sculpting the wolf’s head and trees,I molded and cast the feet, built the lantern and airbrushed the case.

Yoda Airbrush Project

Once again I was called on by Jon Hanz (pennywise) to work on something personal for him, his Yoda build.

He asked me if I would be interested working on his project,airbrushing his case for the upcoming Lan in February..as a huge Star Wars fan myself I couldn’t pass this one up.We discussed several designs and decided to do something based of the Clone Wars..here what I came up with.

OverWatch Winston Scratch Built PC

I was asked by Lee Harrington from PCjunkieMods to help build a project based on the new OverWatch game developed by Blizzard for Intel and CES. We had about 3 weeks to complete this project from scratch,and our work was cut out for us on this one. Traveling from Portland to Stockton California to meet up with Lee at his shop,we hit the ground…stumbling out of the gate. We ran into some serious design issues that cut into our 3 week deadline but working together we solved those problems and came up with a pretty awesome build.

We started with a Dimastech test bench as our platform and scratch built everything around it. We used clay, foam, fiberglass,polystyrene,and RTV silicone mold and resin castings to complete our build. Working 15-18 days we finish up our project 1 day shy of our deadline.

Special thanks to PCjunkieMods and Intel

Winston can be viewed currently at the E3 2016 June 14-16th

A L I E N S PC Mod

I’m a huge fan of anything sci-fi and I thought for my next build Id create something based on the ALIEN franchise.

I chose to use the Cooler Master HAF X and a Cooler Master 915 for this build and gave myself 4 month to complete this in time for PDX LAN in February .

I started with gutting the inside of the HAF X, creating replacement panels,sculpting the facehugger and xenomorph out of clay then making molds of each…Check out the videos here.
